Etnografi ' Sabah

"Suato kajian yang penting'

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, melalui kampus cawanganny8 di Sabah akan melaksanakan satu projek kajian ETNOGRAFI Sabah selama 3 taboo mula 1982 hingga 1985. Bercakap sempena pelancaran program di mini teatre baru~baru ini, Pemangku Ketua Menteri, Datuk James Ongkili berkata, pengajian etnografi Sabah merupakansuatu kajian yang penting. "Kajian ini m:eliputi pertalian atau interaksi antara pendu· duk Sabah dengan alam sekitarnya" .

tauladan dan perkembangan baik untuk kaedah penyelidi­ kan keilmuan di masa · akan datang,

Projek ini dianjurkan dan dibiayai oleh Yayasan Sabah dan mendapat kerjasama dari segi perlaksanaannya oleh Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

Pihak Yayasan Sabah telah berusaha menyediakan koleksi khas Borneo, yangkesemua­ nya itu dapat di menafaat­ kan kaerah ujudnya Pusat Pengajian Borneo, yang

hendaknya bertempat di Kota Kinabalu. Kerjasama antara Yayasan Sabah dan Universiti Kebang­ saan Malaysia dalam melaksa­ nakan kajian etnografi Sabah ini memperlihatkan satu per­ kembangan yang baik bagi kedua-dua organisasi ini sendiri. Datuk James percaya bahawa . pengajian seperti ini akan menjadi tambahan untuk menggalakan lebih banyak lagi program-program pengajian di negeri ini. Manakala itu, bercakap di majIis yang sarna, Naib­ Canselor Universiti Kebang­ saan Malaysia, Prof. Datuk Awang Had Salleh menerang­ kan bahawa Institusi Penga­ jian Tinggi yang Moden tidak lagi boleh berpuas hati dengan kewajipannya terhadap orang

ramai. Beliau berkata, ahli-ahli akademik haruslah keluar dari 'kulit akademik' mereka dan berganding-bahu dengan orang ramai dalam pencapaian matIamat dan hasrat mereka. Prof. Datuk Awang Had Salleh menegaskan bahawa projek kajilidik di Sabah seperti ini merupakan yang terbesar oleh Universiti Ke-bangsaan Malay­ sia, melibatkan kilitangan akademik dari berbagai lapa­ ngan. Beliau percaya bahawa kajian ethnografi Sabah bukan sahaja bermafaat kepada ahli-ahli akademi bahkan kerajaan Negeri juga. Projek yang berharga $250,000 ini akan diketuai oleh Profesor bersekutu, Dahlan Haji Aman,

"""""'Projek kajian etnogragi Sabah ini merupakan satu usaha yang mem punyai makna yang besar yang bukan saja kepada perkembangan akademik bagi Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia sendiri tetapi juga kepada pengli­ batan dan usaha Yayasan Sabah dalam memajukan dan meningkatkan perkembangan pelajaran di peringkat institusi pengajian tinggi." "Yayasan Sabah, yang meng­ anjurkan projek kajian ini, telah menjadi perin tis yang pertama kalinya dapat dibuat satu kajian yang menggabung­ kan bidang sastera (Art) dengan bidang sains yang di­ gunakan untuk satu tujuan, iaitu menjayakan projek kajian etnografi Sabah ini." Adalah menjadi harapan dan kebanggaan kelak bahawa usaha ini akan menjadi satu ... .

RESOLUTIONS

Welcome to the New Year 1982. And to our chinese friends : Welcome to the year of the Dog. Resolutions are always made around this time, and one of resolutions of Berita Yayasan Sabah is to strive for more and better news about staff and our students activities. This year we also ~ee the completion of the Child Development Centre building. Come mid-year, it will be in full swing. We'll ali wait excitedly for the outcome of this model kindergarten, the first of its kind in Malaysia.

Ylctim receiving aid

CLUB ACTIVmES

Back to Club activities, SAFOND SRC has come under some unfair and unjustified remarks. The Oub is presently charging a nominal sum of $10.00 for its gatherings (party). This will not only be for the Ang Pow Night, but for ali other occasions - BEGINNING THIS YEAR. Staff should appreciate that the Club's funds are extremely limited. It is not able to provide everything free to members. However, the Club will continue to SUBSIDISE activities of the members, including the gatherings. REPRESENTATIVE

Some staff of Sabah Foundation were invited and took part in games between institutions/organisations. While this is good and most encouraging, the EXCO of SAFOND SRC felt that un­ necessary problems may arise should something unpleasant happens. These staff like it or not represent the Sabah Founda­ tion, or more appropriately the SAFOND Club. The Exco therefore feels that in future, such activities should be made known to the EXCO members of SAFOND SRC in writing, either to the Vice-Presidents or Secretary of the Club before the event takes f.llace. In this way, the staff involved will represent SAFOND SRC, and the Club can then be responsibl(( for the activities of the staff concerned.

The Dog Is considered to be a loyal and wise creature. . Penons born at night under this influence wnt lead a life of toO whOe those born in the day are quite well.off. The Dog and Hare are well suited.

PA YS officers before the climb

PAYS headquarters received a call from Yayasan Oinie at 1100 hrs requesting for ambu · lance to transport four sick mountain climbers back to Kota Kinabalu. At 1310 hrs an ambulance was dispatched to the Kinabalu National Park. We arrived at about 1645 hrs and was met on arrival by the H/A Encik Rani and later by the Park Warden himself. We were given a briefing on the latest deve­ lopment and were informed that there was only one stret­ cher case and that we had to climb the mountain to meet the group that was carrying her down. After a short snack, we start­ ed to climb the mountain at 1510 hrs together with the Park Warden and two of his men 1t was a tough climb a~ we did not have the proper shoes and adequate thick cloth­

.ing.

Fillaliy we met the group little below 10,000 ft. at about 21 ~ hrs. The patient was a gin--" about 20 years of age and she seemed to be suffering from severe exhaustion. We wrapped her up with an extra blanket and proceeded to carry her down. Two persons carried the stretcher at the back while one was at the rear end. It was in­ deed a very tough journey down and we were all very exhausted. We finally made it down to the National Park headquaters at about 2315 hrs. The patient was checked by the HIA and confirmed to be suffering only from severe exhaustion. We left the patient at' the clinic and was treated to dinner by the Park Warden. After dinner we proceeded back to Kota Kinabalu together with the patient and two of her friends . We finally made it back at 0415 hrs,

REGIONAL OFFICES

OBJECTIVES

In 1974 regional student welfare offices were set up in Malacca, SungeLPetani, Kuala Trengganu and Kuala Lumpur with the main objective of looking into the needs and welfare of our students. The student welfare officer acts as a counsellor and guides and advises the students on their educational and personal problems. The officer also arranges study tours and visits during the student's term holidays.

The Student Welfare Sect,ion was officially set up in 1972 with the primary objective of providing educational oppor­ tunities to Sabah students to. study in various schools in Peninsular Malaysia. The pro­ gramme itself however began in 1968. The main aim of ..:. "-----' .nding students to Peninsular Malaysia is to promote a healthy and harmonius growth of Malaysian consciousness, characterised by multi-racial and tolerance, goodwill understanding among the peoples of Malaysia.

RESPONSIBLE This section is responsible for selecting and sending students to Peninsular Malay­ sia for placement in the

LIAISON Chief Student Welfare officer: Encik MoM. Noor Osman

The Section also functions as a communication and infor­ mation centre for students and parents. It liaises very closely with the KL branch office and the three regional offices on student matters.

secondary schools there. The criteria in the selection is based on the academic per­ formance of the student and the fmancial background of their parents.

Assistant Student Welfare officer, Encik A wang Abdul Hamid

..

In 1968 the first batch of 115 students were sent to study in 12 secondary schools in Peninsular Malaysia. By 1974 the number of students had increased to 672 in 53 schools. There are now 1309 students in 102 secondary

schools there. From 1968 to 1981 a total of 2,790 Sabah students had been sponsored by the Foundation to study in secondary schools in Penin­ sular Malaysia, Sarawak, Sabah and Australia. Our students have also per­ formed very well in their examinations. They achieve an average of 90% passes in their SRP examiriations every year.

Student Welfare staff, and Sabrln

Clumdrrr

The student welfare section in Kota Kinabalu is situated on the 5th floor ofthe Sabah Foundation building. It is headed by the Chief Student Welfare Officer, Encik Mohd. Noor Osman and assisted by a staff of 17. Prior to his posting to Sabah , he was regional officer in Sungei Petani and Ttengganu from 1974 to 1979. Before joining the Foundation, he was teaching in Sungei Petani for nine years.

AMBUlANCI-OFFICIRS

AT PUlAU MAMUTIK

At about 0800 hrs, 14 Ambulance officers left PAYS Headquarters for Tanjong Aru beach, where they boarded a boat for Pulau Mamutik. Upon reaching the Island, camp was immediately set up while waiting for the arrival of the Chief Commander.

casualties and stretcher drills. This was conducted by A/O Borhan, an eX-{lrmy medic , who had 16 years of service behind him. This was indeed a tough exercise and surprisingly enough even the girls carried it out better than expected. A few nearly­ became 'real casualties'.

Encik Rajah Indran, the Chief commander of PAYS, arrived shortly after and gave a short briefing to all the participants of the camp. In his briefing, he stressed the importance of the various training to be achieved from this Island tri p. Later, everyone was assigned to their specific jobs and went about doing it.

Everyone had a real surprise for dinner. "Catch your own fish" , the order went out and so it was fulfilled. This wall all part of jungle survival it . was disclosed later. and it did prove to be a challenging one. So "barbecued fish' and plain rice" was the menu that night.

Lunch was extra special because Mrs. Rajah brought along her generous contribu· tion of 'hot curry ayam'. Everyone ate to their fullest, but some regretted later due to the tough training that had been planned ahead. The first training was the . various techniques in lifting

Since it was quite late, evey· one hit the bed right after dinner fully exhausted. A few grunts and snores were heard in harmony that night, as well as the "music" of the mosquitoes that kept us company. The next morning everyone was on their feet by 0630 hrs for the stiff physical train\ttg

exercise, which was carried out by A/O Borhan. After sweating it all out, everyone had a great appetite for breakfast. Our next training, right after breakfast, was the exploration of the Island by way of the sea-shore . Climbing huge boulders and slippery rocks wasn't an easy task as some of us had earlier thought. Some actually fell but luckily they did not sustain any serious lllJunes. After completing the first part of the exploration, we had to trek up a steep hill, to complete the training. Those who went along bare-footed, returned back to the camp with cuts on their soles. Later that afternoon, we had out first lessons on "life· saving techniques". During this training, some A/O's were asked to act as drowning casualties while the others were taught in the art of rescuing them. After this session was over, some of us had a problem carrying

around a belly-full of salt water. But it was a good experience for us all. The rest of the evening was free so we went about doing our own things. Early next morning, it was' P.T. time again and this time we had commando push­ ups, stomach exercises and running. All of us were becoming very fit. Later that morning we had our last and the toughest training "swimming". Our camp commander, took us all out to sea, about 400 meters from the shore, then asked us all to jump into the sea and swim back to the Island Our camp commander acted as the life-guard. Right after lunch, it was packing up time and everyone went about cleaning up the camping area. At about 1430 hrs, our Chief Commander arrived to close the camp. After the closing ceremony, everyone left the Island in three batches for Kota Kinabalu .

It doesn't work if the victim is obese, and when improperly done it can break a rib."

according to the National Safety Council. Dr. Gilchrist would like to see that figure drastically reduced.

"This is one method that can be done without causing any physical injury to the choking patient," he said. "I, don't know of any time that it's failed ." "HE WILL ALWAYS BE A SLAVE WHO DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO LIVE ON A LITTLE"

About 2,900 Americans choke to death every year,

A new, livesaving techniql;le to dislodge food from the throat of a choking victim which involves only pulling the tongue has been developed by a Chicago doctor. "It works, it's simple and anybody can do ,it. It only takes 10 to 15 seconds and a little bitty girl can do it as well as a great big man!" declared Dr. R. Kennedy Gilchrist, who told how to perform the new method ~mergency . in an , '

This causes the food to dislodge. "They cough it up and they breathe," said Dr. Gilchrist, medical director of Chicago's Comprehensive Health Exa­ mination Cancer Detection Program, who revealed that he fIrst used the technique to save the life of a golf partner who began choking at a banquet.

The Annual Staff/Christmas Party (1981) programme started out with a warning. "If more than three (3) persons from the same unit, section, branch, district are found grouped together for more than 10 minutes between 730pm - 1030pm, the whole group will be penalised and will be request­ ed to perform before the audience"_ If the above was any indica­ tion that the party was going to run dictator-style, it S'Jre proved most dissapointing. Despite the warning, groups of people were still found together. However, be as it were,the most important thing was that everybody should enjoy the ,evening. And there was no doubt in everybody's mind that the evening was full of fun and laughter. If only to add to the organiser's ego, some over­ heard remarks were: " this is the best annual party 1 have ever attended", "well-organis­ ed, very entertaining programmes", "that Mr. Sporting contest had me

laughing so much 1 was in tears", "I thought my stomach was going to burst"_

regretfully recorded missing neckties and brown belts.

Such pleasant remarks are hard to come by. And the organisers should be proud. But this does not mean they should rest on their laurels. They are other occasions that demand success as well. Most if not all of the programmes for the evening were well received by the crowd. Two particularly interesting programmes, or "in-between programmes" as they were more aptly named, brought good response. These were "Most collected items" and "Notorious Personalities"_

The "Most Notorious Personalities" competition also had a purpose. It was to get the rank and me to interact with and get to know all the various heads of section. From the forms we received back, there was no doubt this proved successful. Nobody spared the Director and Deputy Director from signing the forms!

The purpose of the "Most collected items" was to en­ courage the crowd to interact and work with each other. True to its purpose, despite the rules that only two people , should be involved at anyone time, scores of people started borrowing things in order to collect the most or all items listed. The only unfortunate incident recorded was that the borrower forgot to return the items , to their rightful owners. Thus, the organisers

Perhaps, what 'rocked' the whole exhibition foyer that evening was the "Mr (Sporting) Sabah Foundation competition". From the first contestant to the last, the show proved too much for the crowd. Tears of laughter were rolling down the cheeks of the crowd as each contes­ tant showed off what weren't there. This particular "competition" is in fact an original idea of the organisers. And it sure brought the house down that evening. The choir also proved sur­

prisingly good. With a medley of christmas 'pop' songs, it had the crowd stampihg their feet in unison. Thanks to Lena Robert and Sylvester Fung for a job well done. The climax (anti-climax?) of the evening was the presenta- ;­ tion of prizes and eight lucky draws. The Director, Datuk Ben Stephens, gave away prizes for the Inter­ district games while the Deputy Director, Tengku D Z. Adlin gave away prizes, for the inter-team games. Prizes for the individual games and Bakat Safond competition were given away by Datin Emily Stephens and Datin Mariam Adlin respectively. The last item on the programme was "spot dancing". As it were, there were winners and there were losers. The organisers recorded an attendance of 850 people. But most important of all the organisers felt glad that the crowd enjoyed themselves, even the Director himself, who stayed on close to finishing time at 1.00am.

Events for' 82'

What's in the store for 1982 for SAFOND SRC members? There will be promising events to keep the year interesting for everyone.

During SAFOND SRC recent meeting, the EXCO members plitnned a tentative pro­ gramme for its members at Kota Kinabalu.

Besides the usual indoor games like table tennis, chess, darts and carrom, new games such as draught and scrabble will be introduced. These games will be open to indivi­

dual members beginning in March. After having successfully organised the walkathon last year and netting more than $7,000, the club is contem­ plating on organising a similar project. Only this time it is a joggathon to be held sometime in the middle of the year. The club has also taken the initiative to organise a Chinese New Year party (Ang Pow Night) for the first time for staff of the Foundation on February 6. Harvest festival as usual will be celebrated in

May.

Another new items on the programme is Family's Day, to be held in June. On this day, a variety of games (like the tele match) will be organised for all staff, their wives, husbands and children. It will be an occasion for all to have good clean fun. For the month of July, after the month of Ramathan, a Hari Raya gathering for staff will be held at our head· quarters building.

Another fund raising project to supplement the Club's fund is a premier show. Hopefully, this project would

get

underway

in

August.

During the month of September, SAFOND SRC will hold inter departmental , or institutional games with government departments, statutory bodies and private firms to establish better rapport with members of the public. Inter team and individual games for SAFOND SRC members are tentatively scheduled to commence in October followed by the inter district tournaments in December and culminating in the Annual staff party.
